About a training gear for E-Sky Honey Bee V2


Hi, I bought a Honey bee 2, and since i'm a beginner i wanted to buy a training gear for it. The problem is, i only found a large one close to where i live ( http://www.esky-heli.com/esky-traini...th=340_507_485 ) which is for helis like: Belt CP/Belt CP X/KIng 3/Lama/Big Lama (and as far as i know most of 'em are bigger than the honey bee 2).since I won't bother and order a training gear from a different country, I wanted to ask if this training gear will work for the Honey bee v2?
Thanks a lot,
Mihax209.

Thanks, but i said that i didn't want to order from the other side of the world just for a training gear. That's why i asked if the big one could fit.
anyway, thanks again.

If the gear you linked will work on a HBK3 they will work on a Honey Bee 2. If you find them to be too long you can always trim them down, they are just carbon fiber rod and ping pong balls after all.

A honey bee king 3 is the same size as honey bee 2?

No, but the training gear you linked to will fit anything from a 300 class to 400 class as far as I know.

As I said if they are too long for you, cut down the carbon fiber rod.

-They aren't ideal for the model. They are too heavy...

I'm not saying that i will do any tricks or even more than simple maneuvers with the training gear. Just in case something goes wrong in hovering so i won't have to order new parts again and fix it because of a stupid mistake or even wind that surprised me.
Do you think that it will still be to heavy for that?

BTW it's not like they was my first choice, just none of the smaller training gear around here...

-As I said they are not ideal. The extra weigh taxes the motor and batteries and makes the model feel logey; not what you want for learning how to hover.

You want something like: # EK1-0221 Training Kit

Believe me, i would be more than happy to get them instead of the ones i showed. But i seriously doubt if i would order from out of the country just for that.
Thank you anyways for replying and helping!!!

EK1-0221 is the earlier version of EK1-0221a, he linked to EK1-0221a in his post. They are almost the same weight! So why are you trying to convince him that the original is much lighter than the revision?

Here's a HBFP with the EK1-0221 set mounted on it:



Here's a side by side comparison of the two arms:



If anything the newer set will fit his helicopter much better than the older one did, being less likely to cave in on itself.

-There aren't the same. If you go to the link and look at the comparison photo's you'll see they are the training gear set being shipped with Esky's belt CP. They are too big in diameter...

Ps: in the photo you provided, you don't have the gear rigged correctly. Most folks run the gear with the balls out on the ends of the gear. You actually want the gear to "cave in on itself"

You can cut down the rod to whatever size you like. These are universal kits and are made to fit multiple helicopters. You can put it on a HBFP with no issues.

If you think that you can't cut the CF rod in the kit then you're confused.
